Swim meet

I am really not in the mood to write.  Having shoulder pain makes it very hard.  Going for a MRI Monday, Doctor's appointment on Wednesday.
We did go to the swim meet.  We've not been there at all this year, but it is so very uncomfortable to sit there on those darn bleachers.  Being in pain makes it even worse.  I did take a few pictures.  Glad to report that Central won.

Baby it's cold outside

Happy New Year!
We did have cold weather before, but this is a little too much. I don't think that there is an end in sight yet and we are supposed to get a huge snow storm tomorrow.  The news report says:
Winter Storm Grayson to Bring a Wintry Mess of Ice and Snow Expected From North Florida to Maine; Blizzard Conditions Possible in New England.
Yikes....time to stay in and oh people out there....don't forget to run out and get milk and bread.  Hahaha
On New Year's day we went for a ride to the campground.  It was too cold to stay, but I did take a few pictures.
On the way home we took Rt. 9 and went down Butler Blvd. in Bayville.  I wanted to see the new fishing pier at the playground.  From there we took the road that goes past the Cove towards Ocean Gate.  It was a nice ride.  Missed all the old telegraph poles, but the old building is still standing.
We also stopped a new store (yes it was open) called Market Fresh.  I wished they would have a store like this in our development. 
Back home we just chillaxed the rest of the day.

Christmas Eve 2017

What a great time we had.  Dinner was excellent.  Our bar tender, the one and only Dan, fixed great drinks with lots of alcohol....lots. We had wonderful time and hopefully so did everyone else.  The biggest surprise was the 55" TV that the kids got us.  Can't wait to have it hooked up.

Elisabeth's 10th birthday party

It's really hard to believe that our little Boo is 10 years old.  We celebrated her birthday 2 days early and everyone had a nice time.

Christmas time in Smithville

Smithville is always pretty to visit, but it is gorgeous around the holidays.  It was bitter cold when we were there today, but totally worth the effort.

Busy week

Wow....some week!  It sure was busy and exciting too.  The good news is, I am done Christmas shopping!  Yay!  I also spotted Santa in the Freehold mall when I was on the second floor.
All present are wrapped and ready to be transported to Tammy's house.  As we do every year, we celebrate Christmas eve is over at the Lucianos.  It's always very nice and I just love watching the kids unwrap their presents.
This past weekend we spent most of our time at the Elks.  Saturday was the children's Christmas party and Sunday I took pictures with Santa and the pets. It was very nice and everyone had a great time.

Our campsite in fall

What a gorgeous day we had yesterday.  We took a ride to the campground.  Peter wanted to get the leaves and pine needles off the roof and I just wanted to walk around and take a few pictures. I must say, I can't wait for the next camping season.

Once again we celebrated Thanksgiving over Dennis and Chrissy's.  Elisabeth did an awesome job creating the vegetable turkey, there were shrimps and delicious drinks with apples & cinnamon 
The food was excellent, and so was the dessert.  I brought pudding shots....OMG, they are so good.  So easy to make too! 
Here is where I ordered the cups:

White Russian Pudding Shots

1 package of instant chocolate pudding
3/4 c milk
1/4 cup vodka
1/2 cup Irish cream
8 oz Extra creamy Cool Whip.

Mix pudding mix and milk for a couple of minutes with an electric beater.  Add alcohol and mix well.
Add Cool Whip.  Put the mix into individual serving cups with lids.
Keep in freezer until ready to serve.
